CarComplaints.com Notes: The 2007 Cobalt inherited most of the problems from the 2005 and 2006 model years, but toned them down (a bit). Sure, the power steering still fails and the car has a chance of going up in flames due to a cracked fuel tank, but it’s not as prevalent as the older models. At least not yet.

In 2012, the Cobalt was recalled for gas tank fires but only for owners in certain states.

Then in 2014, the 2007 Cobalt was part of a massive GM recall due to a defective ignition switch that could cause the airbags to not deploy during an accident. The problem led to 13 deaths, government investigations and multiple class-action lawsuits.

I was pulling into a parking space when the gas pedal went to the floor causing the car to accelerate uncontrollably. I put my foot on the brakes pushing them as hard as I could with the car not slowing down at all. It caused me to wreck my car into a building totaling my car and giving me a head injury that required me to go to the hospital. There was no floor mat. It went to floor all on its own and would not stop accelerating. This needs to be investigated.
